    Kawasaki silicone spray vs fogging oil

    There are two different dealers in my area. one sells the silicone spray and the other sells the fogging oil. I understand the fogging oil is meant for the supercharger/cylinders. The silicone spray says it is designed to lubricate moving parts. Neither can mentions spraying on the outer engine to waterproof, but both mention they prevent rusting on metals. Which spray should be used on the outer engine and other hull internals? Is there a better spray (not wd-40) to put inside the hull besides kawasaki name brand...it costs too much!

    i spray my engine bay with silicone spray...i use fogging oil on the carbs, straight down inside of them.


    fluid film is probably better value for money for doing the bay because silcone spray only comes in dinky little cans :\

    i read another member on here sprays their bay with something thats lanolin based, which is an oil extract from wool....that would also work...whatever you do though do not spray the engine bay with wd40 as it eats rubber away.

    fluid film for me too!!! i forgot who turned me on to this famous stuff, but i use it! it get the job done(for the outside) and for the inside i use the KAWI STUFF fogging oil... it's the last ski i'm ever gonna buy so i take care of it, i'm not gonna complain about the cost. i know that ANY thing with kawis name on it will be higher for me it's just peace of mine. I dont use WD-40 for anything related to the ski.
